i find it plain that economic impact would temporary. u.s. president donald trump has again the accused iran of not living up to the spirit of the twenty fifty nuclear deal the trumpet ministrations expected to decertify the agreement next week saying it's not in the national interest of the u.s. trump met military leaders at the white house to discuss the deal we must not allow iran to obtain to obtain nuclear weapons the iranian regime supports terrorism and exports violence bloodshed and chaos across the middle east
8:07 am
that is why we must put an end to iran's continued aggression and nuclear ambitions they have not lived up to the spirit of their agreement out of there was political hay and has more now from washington d.c. . just saw twenty four hours ago secretary of defense jim maddest tell the u.s. congress that he thinks that it's in the u.s. national security interest to stay in the iran deal and at the time that many people thought he was speaking to an audience of one president donald trump but if you really look back in now with this reporting that president may have found what he sees as a loophole where he can decertify but the not push congress to reimpose sanctions there is by satisfying his base mattis is a key voice he is respected on capitol hill and you're starting to see some republicans especially within the leadership say basically it will quote they uses the toothpaste is always an overt out of the bottle the money has been given to iran the sanctions have been lifted if they were to reimpose sanction they know the
8:08 am
allies would blame them for and walked away from the nuclear deal and it's not at all clear that the allies would follow suit and which would mean the same sions were somewhat toothless so it's not confirmed that the republicans will go along but it's also important to point out whenever things go in the congress anything could happen lobbying matters so you will be faced with a choice between the pro israeli government lobby and all of the allies and other countries like china and russia who said we signed this deal we're not renegotiating so there will be pressure on congress not to mention the fact that the trump administration cannot point to any evidence that iran is it living up to their part of the deal the i.a.e.a. has said they're in one hundred percent compliance to get around that the trump administration keeps saying but the agreement said that iran would and this is important they say quote the deal they said positively contribute to regional and international peace and security the deal does the agreement doesn't say that it doesn't say iran will contribute it says the agreement will contribute they can't
8:09 am
quite square that peg when you ask them about it so there might have a shaky argument but if they do this that it goes to congress to decide if they scuttle the deal at least from a u.s. perspective. iraqi forces have captured the town of how we german and the surrounding area this was isilon stronghold in northern iraq the military says some fighting still going on to the north and east of the town where i still is now surrounded troops were greeted by jubilant villages in that six kilometers northwest of the town where the capture of who each of the only here that remains under i still control is a stretch along the western border with syria turkey says it's considering a blockade of iraq's kurdish region by closing its airspace and borders after the kurdish secession of the last week turkey's president richard type erdogan has also said he'll decide with iran and iraq central government on whether to cut oil imports from the iraqi kurds zero to one as in the raid in capital tehran on wednesday where he discussed the kurdish vote with iran's leaders both countries
8:10 am
have large ethnic kurdish populations meanwhile france's president has offered to mediate between iraq central government and kurdish leaders he made the offer after talks visiting the iraqi prime minister body the need for on iraq we are particularly interested in the stability of iraq in the upcoming weeks and months we hope very much that there will be dialogue that is respectful of the integrity of iraq and we would also like to advocate that in the framework of the constitution a recognition of the kurds should take place there is a long path to go towards political inclusion but it must also make sure that the constitution is respected hundreds of people have gathered in las vegas to remember a police officer who was killed in sunday's shooting at a country music festival thirty four year old charleston hard field was off duty during the incident he was among the fifty eight victims of gunman stephen paddock it was the worst mass shooting in modern u.s. history. meanwhile the u.s. his most powerful gun lobby the national rifle association wants to restrict the
8:11 am
use of the device which allows semiautomatic weapons to file automatically some of the rifles used by gunman stephen had been modified with the device and a gallica has more from las vegas. for years the republican party in the powerful national rifle association or and already resisted any calls for gun control in president donald trump they have a staunch supporter of the right to bear arms something he made clear in april you caved through for me and i am going to come through for you i'm also proud to be the first sitting president to address the n.r.a. leadership forum since our wonderful ronald reagan in ninety eight. but in the wake of sunday's mass shooting in which stephen product killed fifty eight people the n.r.a. has called for a change and republicans say that open to talks at issue is the use of stocks
8:12 am
a modification that allows semiautomatic weapons to fire automatically something police say stephen product used with horrific consequences these types of modifications a currently legal but in a statement the n.r.a. say additional regulations and now needed senior republicans say they're willing to talk fully automatic weapons and demand for a long time apparently this allows you to take a semiautomatic turn in a fully automatic so clearly that's something we need to look into and people are just coming up to speed with what these things are and so that is something we're definitely going to look into. the n.r.a. statement and consequent republican backing is significant despite a spate of mass shootings in recent years talk of restrictions on gun control are extremely rare we certainly welcome that would like to be part of that conversation and we would like to see a clear understanding of the facts and we'd like to see input from the victims' families from law enforcement from policymakers and we're expecting to hear. another important fact finding efforts by now and we want to be part of that
8:13 am
discussion we're certainly open to that moving forward democrats have long been clamoring for a chance to talk about new gun control laws now they may have the chance many would relish the opportunity to push things further and talk about limiting magazine capacities and increased background checks but that may prove too much for a publican's president some says banning bump stocks is now on the agenda for many people it's action not words that will make a difference and gallacher al-jazeera las vegas nevada. time for a short break here on al-jazeera when we come back more than two years after the pool's deadly earthquake survivors face fresh challenges with newly built homes plus. this boat is more than a presidential possession. of the high life. in central park new york coming up i'll tell you which president. i don't want to.
